Bionic Heart Visual Novel Enters Closed Beta
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Tycoon Games has announced that its upcoming visual novel title, Bionic Heart, has now entered closed beta stage. The game is a combination of visual novel and classic adventure game set in a sci-fi future. It will feature multiple locations, a variety of items to interact with in the environment, people to meet and talk with, and multiple possible endings to discover.

“With Bionic Heart I wanted to create a product for young adults that would immerse them in the world of classic science fiction. The game is much like a sci-fi comic book, with a fun story and plenty of drama, not unlike real-life events,” said Riva Celso, programmer/designer of Tycoon Games.

The game takes place in London in the year 2099 in a world where Earth's climate is so ravaged by pollution and global warming that most of the world is covered in an unending rain. You take the role of Luke Black, an informatic engineeer working for Nanotech, one of the leading nanotechnology companies of the day.

The game follows the classic gameplay of visual novels, allowing the player to make choices that will determine Luke's fate. It also includes interactive sequences in which the player will be able to freely move through several locations and interact with the environment, object, and people around him. With twenty-four unique endings, some more difficult to unlock than others, the game has a high replay value.
Bionic Heart is currently in early beta testing and should be available this Summer for Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. System requirements will be "very low."
